Shorna is a beautiful 5 year-old from Bangladesh. Shorna's arm was badly
burnt when a towel hanging from her arm caught the flame of the family's oil
lamp - their only source of light in their home. The result was a horrible burn
contracture that would not allow her to bend her arm, causing her parents to pull her out of school.
Interplast volunteer surgeons, working with local surgeons in Dhaka, released her
contracture to restore her freedom of movement and give her the opportunity to return to school.
